Priority Health Equity Indicators for British Columbia

Drawing on data from Statistic Canada’s Canadian Community Health Survey, the report finds over one in ten B.C. households struggling to put food on the table in 2011-12. Families with children under the age of 18 were at an even greater risk of food insecurity, with one in six B.C. children living in a food insecure household.

This report explains why reducing household food insecurity at a population level will require policy changes that improve a household’s financial circumstances. More information found here.
